I Wear Many Hats:

My name is Becky Flansburg (a.k.a Franticmommy) and I am a full-time freelance writer, accountability coach, home business consultant and project manager. I’ve been flying solo as a work from home pro for almost a decade and I can’t imagine another way of life.

I am a dedicated mom to two beautiful kids and this site is filled with laughter and love about the joys parenthood. I am also committed to helping women realize their work-from-home dreams, enjoy life beyond the cubicle and find clarity in the work/life/family balance.

As the Project Manager for the non-profit children’s literacy initiative, Multicultural Children’s Book Daywe work tirelessly to raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity and to get more of these of books into classrooms and libraries.

I am also 1/2 of the UpNorthParent.com team of moms. This adventure with Laura has been my most enjoyable and rewarding one to date.


I told you I wear many hats 🙂

My Journey

I left my job of 15 years (in an industry I had worked in for 30+ years-YES, I started when I was 16) in 2011 to pursue my new career as a Virtual Assistant and Freelance Writer. It was and still is, a journey filled with upsanddowns, huge learning curves, new adventures and absolutely NO regrets. Armed with what I know now, I want to empower other Moms/women (like me) to take back their lives and pursue their dreams of business ownership.

My Main Goal for Franticmommy?

  • 1. Make other Moms laugh
  • 2. Be an inspiration for those wanting to work from home.
  • 3. Share all the amazing multicultural books that cross my desk
  • 4. Provide freelance writing services for clients and businesses of all sizes.

1 thought on “About Me

  1. I finally explored your website. Nice getting to know more about you. We share the same favorite color: Red. I am now beyond Mummy and into Grammy. You’re never done worrying about your kids, and then the grandkids enter into your frantic state, too. But, of course, the joy that both generations bring to one’s life outweighs the moments of frantic. Good luck with your stage in this journey.
